Jamie Lee Curtis not pleased about Golden Globes star 'Fiji Water Girl'

Jamie Lee Curtis not pleased about Golden Globes star 'Fiji Water Girl'

If you haven't been under a rock from the last few days, you will know of the 31-year-old Canadian model Kelleth Cuthbert who went viral at the Golden Globes this year.

It's a common enough occurrence at awards shows, but Jamie Lee Curtis wasn't having any of it and this certainly wasn't her first red carpet.

"No, it wasn't (planned), I've actually worked for Fiji in a similar capacity a number of times on red-carpet things".

"Fiji Water woman knows she deserves to be in the shot".

She may be a model, but the internet has dubbed her best supporting actress for her compelling red carpet looks. "Just because a person is a celebrity, does not mean that they are public property".

We may only be a week into the new year, but people are already calling "Fiji Water Girl" the first great meme of 2019 - and for good reason!

Cuthbert, who usually works as a fashion model and commercial actress, said she wasn't intentionally trying to steal the spotlight - but rather her modeling instincts took over.

The pride with which Cuthbert performed her duty struck many viewers.

People watching the pre-awards coverage exploded on Twitter at her knowing looks and what looked like expert photobombing.

Other users Photoshopped her into classic film scenes. "There are two people here tonight that I'm so grateful they're here for me", Sandra said in her speech, adding in Korean, "Mom, Dad, I love you" with a little bow. "As the official water sponsor of the Golden Globes, FIJI Water, along with its FIJI Brand Ambassadors, hydrated guests on the red carpet and during the star-studded show".

For more on the surprising, fun, star-studded 2019 Golden Globes, check out the video below.

Cuthbert, married to photographer Christopher von Steinbach, left Toronto for Los Angeles about four years ago, according to the Verve, and has gone on to do global work. We'll see! I think all of this stuff is very fleeting. The model, who is represented by the Wilhemina agency, has nearly 170,000 followers on Instagram.
